A Weel  resident reported that waste from the recycling site was being deposited into  freshwater drains in Weel.  East Riding  of Yorkshire Council and the Environment Agency were contacted.  East Riding Officers met with the contractor
who runs the site and sub-contractor responsible for clearing the water – and  as a result ERYC gully team will clear the drain and remove any debris as a  matter of urgency, with a promise that this action would not be repeated.  The Environment Agency also investigated and  it is believed they have concluded the licence holder had breached the licence conditions and enforcement action will be taken against them.
